Boy And Magpie Are Best Mates

When 10 year old Noah Bloom found an abandoned magpie chick in 2010, he and his family took it to a vet who informed them that the bird would most likely be put down.

They decided to take her home and nurse her to health, giving her the name "Penguin" and soon she was a member of the family!

Penguin waits for the family to go out for the day before flying off to do her thing before returning home to greet Noah when he gets back from school.

“It’s like a dog wagging its tail – she sits there in the tree and flaps her wings like she’s excited,” Noah’s father told Environmental News.

The family have released a touching book about their experience called 'Penguin Bloom: The Odd Little Bird Who Saved A Family'
